I wonder how many people with neanderthal intellect are behind this injustice to nature.
Not as many who are against it
Thankyou much appreciated. Hard to understand how peaple given the power to make these decisions, end up makeing the ones that will end up with such a catastrophic outcome. wish there was more i could do to help.
We need the bees need to be protected.
Save the bees, mother!!!!! ;-)
the MP's that allow these insecticides to be used don't live in the real world where do they think fruit and vegetables are going to come from with out the BEES I set everything in my garden to attract them my escalonia headge and perennial wallflowers and stock,s foxgloves, are throbbing with BEES at the moment
Those who keep using this stuff are somewhat insane. A greed that overcomes sanity, that destroys our food, our health, our planet. How appropriate that they aim to destroy honey bees; they aim to destroy the sweetness of the planet. They could use some sweetening of their hard cash, short-sighted vision. They have too much power over this exquisite planet of the dying coral and the disappearing species, disappearing languages of the world, human and plant and animal, the hilltops, the oceans, the air, the chorus of the natural world.
So very sad isn't it. Our only hope is mother nature kicks back and sorts out these short sighted, greedy fools and believe me she will:)
Bees are our source of life
Too true,Bees are so important.God help us if they all die
Life will be over! With out the Honey Bee!
Could be brother.
We need all the bees we can get.
lol ... like the dolphins.
Keep the bee natural our children eat the bee honey! uh! Im not even a rocket man!!!!
Oh my Im not even smart and can get this one!!! Oh my am i saying Im domb? Nooo
Im just not a rocket scientists!
Uh dumb! Ha! :)
It is not just about the sweet honey. We need the bees to cross pollinate our fruit trees and plants. Everyone has a purpose no matter how little they are. As for the bees they are very important for our survival.
Yes it is.... it is so sad to see all the damage that we are still doing.
we must do our very best to stop the decline of our pollinators,, future generations rely on us to take care !!!
Manon Menard-Adams YES AND THE FAT CATS DO NOT CARE ABOUT IT EITHER... AS LONG AS THEY GET THERE PROFITS...
Please Please everyone read this.
Many of us fought to have a ban in the Uk and Europe. We supposedly won. But the ban is a total sham.
The ‘ban’ doesn’t come into force until December. By then most if not all farmers will have purchased their chemical coated seeds for next year.
They are only banning 3 of the neonicotinoids. There are others, which will not be banned.
They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there...
They are only being banned from using on pollinating plants, so will still be used on other crops, meaning that there will continue to be residues on the land. And it is not known how long residues last for.
There is no ban on all the other insecticides, which may also be having a detrimental effect on all bees and other pollinating insects.
New studies show that not only are bees are being affected, but hoverflies and lacewings too. So the notion by many folk that there are other insects, which can go on pollinating, is false.
We have had the most amazing apple blossom this year, yet very few bees working it – one or two here and there. The same with comfrey, which would normally be humming with bumble bees. We in the Uk have had a very long winter, and still a cool spring. Indeed, the coldest spring in 50 years. This has undoubtedly has had a serious effect on bee populations of all kinds. Undoubtedly too, they have been weakened by chemicals.
Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So...
Think about it seriously. Insecticides do that – kill insects! So what can we expect – dead bees, dead hoverflies, dead lacewings….. all for the sake of money and power.
The same people are pushing to ban all seeds that are not controlled by Monsanto and the other chemical industries, so that we have to use their genetically modified seeds, which will only grow by using their chemicals.
The same people who are trying to ban the use of homeopathy, herbs and other forms of natural healing, so that we are all hooked on to their drugs.
Part three: Please, everyone wake up to what is happening. These multinational companies are after world domination and politicians are falling over backwards to oblige.
So true.. we are not talking politics, but life as we know it.
befor its too late if it already isn't!!
pitty its only us saying stop,our com sold us out years ago,id love to say enjoy the ride ,but i know we will not.
Yes It is a case of tunnel vision with some of the bureaucrats. There is no thought about the wider implications.
thank you all for your responses, i have only found them as only John's was fed back to me. I am a member of the Wedmore Green Group here in England, and we lean on our 'poly-tishons' (oh, a species of parrot!!!!!!!!). perhaps you have local pressure groups you can work with, or join to help the cause. Or even start one yourselves. Just a thought. You can look up our website and get ideas. i wish you all well. melvyn ps i will be happy to hear from you.
